Often referred to in the media as the "King of Pop", for 4 decades Michael Jackson reigned supreme as one of pop culture's most talked about and imitated global figures. From the very beginning of his solo career as a singer/songwriter, Michael Jackson's musical influence helped to pave the way for modern pop music.

A Grammy Award winner 13 times, Jackson (whose records have sold over 450 million copies, worldwide) is easily recognized as being one of the best selling artists of all time.

The day Michael Jackson died in 2009 websites all across the planet crashed from user overload, which was triggered by a global outpouring of disbelief and mourning.

This "Best Of", 2-disc CD set contains nearly forty of Michael's most memorable tunes from the years between 1969-1995. Three of my favorites are - The Man In The Mirror, Billy Jean and Beat It.

You never make me stay
So take your weight off of me
I know your every move
So won't you just let me be
I've been here times before
But I was too blind to see
That you seduce every man
This time you won't seduce me
She's saying that's okay
Hey baby do what you please
I have the stuff the you want
I am the thing that you need
She looked me deep in the eyes
She's touchin' me so to start
She says there's no turnin' back
She trapped me in her heart
Dirty Diana, nah
